    One match away in #Overwatch from getting into diamond and there are THREE smurfs on my team @PlayOverwatch This has been a problem in your game for YEARS Step it up @BlameTC

  • Level2H2H Level2H (@Level2H2H) reported

    @heinechan7 @Yxngxst i just dont enjoy overwatch anymore... :( they need to delete brig and fix their game

  • TuckerToad TuckerToad⚡️ (@TuckerToad) reported

    @DunkinHOnutTV People who have at least 750 hours minimum on CS have these down no problem! Me having only 13 solid hours of it. Only playing BRs and Overwatch have very few or none of these... so it’s my personal training that’ll help me get better.

  • merryh meredith ✨ 🍐 (@merryh) reported

    @Hookkshot I play MOBAs too but I’ve never had as bad a problem as in Overwatch as voice chat is usually less common in MOBAs

  • OlsonIssac Issac Olson (@OlsonIssac) reported

    @chaseshaco I would much rather feel like I had a fair shot with it being random then feeling looked over like it felt with Overwatch. If they crash the server, its possible we wouldnt see Valorent betas until the Fall. Its fair - from a logistic and development perspective

  • SRyan311 Ryan (@SRyan311) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent fix overwatch you ******* retards. Get disconnected. Rejoined. Get a 2 hour ban. Never left before you guys are a joke. Almost as bad as #easports

  • snekypanda13 SnekTheLad (@snekypanda13) reported

    @BlizzardCS I'm having issues connecting to game servers. Overwatch does not connect any more even though I played last night and modern warfare will not connect to game servers at all. I have already tried reinstallling the launcher.

  • bullboski Bullboski (@bullboski) reported

    @SEALProduction @PlayVALORANT People are saying it's a mix between Overwatch & CS:GO. So I don't have a problem with that.

  • Combine935 Combine (@Combine935) reported

    @MrAgentStrange When they kept adding more heroes instead of fixing bugs, then when it came to fixing heroes they changed all their abilities and how they work when all they needed was 1 simple fix and lastly listening to feedback from Overwatch League instead of the community.

  • darth0kahn Don Bon (@darth0kahn) reported

    @wwarrior_1 Oddly enough siege, a game with a very similar focus on esports and character based abilities, is thriving where overwatch is failing, despite having an artificially made esports scene, so it might just be a problem with overwatch

  • xcherryblom ✧ 𝕔 𝕙 𝕖 𝕣 𝕣 𝕪 ✧ (@xcherryblom) reported

    i haven’t been able to play apex all day. Error after error, it’s basically unplayable and im not even in the mood to play Overwatch. Might as well take this time to finish my hw

  • Bizzy_Beanz BizzyBeanz (@Bizzy_Beanz) reported

    I think for the first time ever i actually cant STAND playing overwatch after playing valorant. Idk if i could get back into OW now, maybe when OW2 comes out they will fix all their issues and i could get back into it. Like that will happen 🤣

  • Goat_Asylum Asylum (@Goat_Asylum) reported

    I don’t think I’ll ever like CSGO type gunplay. Just doesn’t feel right to me. Shit be right on top of someone head/body and misses. Have zero issues in any other FPS, weather it’s Halo, overwatch, etc. Truly a vibe kill man

  • thisdarkfuture Existential Dredd (@thisdarkfuture) reported

    @FourEcchiTasty Overwatch is also just a shit game. Overwatch's design is inherently at odds with itself. Like every design there are cursed problems within it. However OW has design elements, both integral and incidental that enhance toxicity and reduce fun.

  • Ivy182 Ivy Uses Optic Blast (@Ivy182) reported

    @UpToTASK To be fair. She's not wrong to think that. Overwatch porn has been a problem for Blizzard. 😂😂😂

  • letheUK luke ≧◡≦ (@letheUK) reported

    VALORANT's biggest problem is the Agents. They're all boring as shit. When Overwatch came out, all the characters were so cool and I wanted to learn more about them but VALORANT is a snooze fest in that regard.

  • gr0nes conor (@gr0nes) reported

    game has significant problems that they need to fix to maintain the prosperity of the state of the game. I wonder if they've figured out that heros like brig and moira can't exist in their current states in an ideal overwatch. I wonder if they're prepared to rework those heros.

  • SchwarzerRegenZ SchwarzerRegenZ (@SchwarzerRegenZ) reported

    @vlvtrm I used to be a huge Overwatch Fan , always wore a hero shirt to classes along with the hoodie, I'd play 2-3 hours a day or more But I can't even stand booting it up these days it's so broken and boring in every sense , there's just so many better games out right now and Valorant

  • R6Envy Envy (@R6Envy) reported

    @Gcole6OW @DeGarmo2 @vlvtrm Yeah the main problem with the competitive Overwatch scene is that the support for T2 + T3 is severely lacking and isn’t worth the effort and time you’d spend grinding.

  • Pulaladisiaque Puladisiaque (@Pulaladisiaque) reported

    Got a notification saying "@Addysun released Bunny Poison" or something. Me, going "omgwtfomg" during my Overwatch match, clicking Patreon like a mad man. Patreon sayin "error 404" Me, not Happy.

  • jmntheestalli 🍓 (@jmntheestalli) reported

    locals and they corny “kpop bad” jokes are so annoying bro,they be thinking they some type of stand up ngga if u don’t go back to arguing with ur mother abt not being able to pause overwatch and ranting abt ur incel issues on reddit and discord

  • ruby_ebook faker ruby (@ruby_ebook) reported

    fix overwatch mmr loss 2k17

  • ValiantValkyrie 𝕸𝖆𝖘𝖙𝖊𝖗 𝖔𝖋 𝖙𝖍𝖊 𝕳𝖚𝖓𝖙 (@ValiantValkyrie) reported

    So, Blizzard, When you're done shoving the blessed ****** of activition up your asses, fix the game, fix what overwatch 2 is adding because it ******* isn't alot "oh wow, pve mode with new abilties and such" that doesn't make a game

  • anyssa_field anyssa field (@anyssa_field) reported

    @ChopsticksEnby when people complain enough and enough big streamers “quit overwatch” they have to fix it

  • NewtonSmithPost NewtonSmith (@NewtonSmithPost) reported

    I hope overwatch 2 fixes some problems with the original, having new heroes and maps is cook and all, but I want heroes to get buffs and nerfs they need, and a bastion rework would he nice too, I doubt we'll see much for any of that soon but I can dream.

  • itsArlowe Ivy (@itsArlowe) reported

    overwatch has actually broken me and i don't care if i lose anymore

  • Moodyy_Mara mara^ (@Moodyy_Mara) reported

    the problem with overwatch's psychics is there are no psychics lol

  • Bobby_LightPR Robert (@Bobby_LightPR) reported

    @macawcaw123 It's more an Overwatch killer than it is a CSGO killer. There are a ton of things to fix and change but it could be pretty great.

  • HoodieFern i miss you @nba (@HoodieFern) reported

    @PlayOverwatch FIX TIER 2 OF OVERWATCH

  • QuanFromCT Ace Trainer Quan (@QuanFromCT) reported

    Man all I wanted to do was play Overwatch and that shit not working

  • itsGGood Punisher (@itsGGood) reported

    Saying overwatch 2 is gonna fix everything is like flightreacts saying wait till June and he’ll become a 98 overall

  • LorekeeprDesert {LoReKeePer} DeSerT StReaM (@LorekeeprDesert) reported

    This is actually the second time it's happened although the first was years ago, back when I still played Overwatch But yeah my pc has tons of issues now and I haven't even had it that long :/ Kinda sad

  • ScuffyOW Scuffy📈 (@ScuffyOW) reported

    I have big brain idea let's all play wow so blizzard can get some money and finally fix overwatch and not destroy the ow esports scene. Nah jk they arent gonna fix it gr

  • SammichMakr Jess (@SammichMakr) reported

    I think I have a problem because overwatch is such dogshit but I can’t stop playing it.

  • JMiguelGMatos João Miguel Matos (@JMiguelGMatos) reported

    @EliavGz @SkyWilliams @summit1g Overwatch is a bad example, since there are a lot of broken heroes. R6 has abilities and besides one or two that are indeed annoying, none of them is broken, much less OP.

  • Vip3rOW Vip3r (@Vip3rOW) reported

    I still have a goal for overwatch and that is to play for contenders or play for world cup!! But if overwatch doesnt fix their shit i might switch to valorant

  • weetabeckss becksy (@weetabeckss) reported

    Someone called me a dumb **** on Overwatch; dont do it when I'm 3 wine glasses down!! They got absolutely ripped into bc they asked for heals when we were dead, charged in alone, ran off from heals as we tried to heal, but i was the problem bc

  • MAVwarrior2 Yami | Maverick Warrior (@MAVwarrior2) reported

    Yea, time to play paladins and Overwatch till they fix

  • red_scott red "THIS SPACE FOR SALE" scott (@red_scott) reported

    @dane is there an outage in the mission, I want to play Overwatch with @JesseFernandez and he doesn’t want to say anything but you’re letting us down!!!

  • apoIIoloko apollowo (@apoIIoloko) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent FIX YOUR SHITTY ASS SERVERS.. holy shit it won’t even let me get into overwatch

  • deobist lisa 🍓 (@deobist) reported

    um why is overwatch not working i’m gonna cry

  • Inner____Space Tucker (@Inner____Space) reported

    @ggukachuu Overwatch. Let us know if u can login. Ps4 is ****** up rn

  • xlolalilux Shiro ʕ•ﻌ•ʔ (@xlolalilux) reported

    @BlizzardCS hi I was in a Overwatch comp game on ps4 when I suddenly get disconnected and can’t log back in on any account. I know for a fact that it’s not my wifi bc I wasn’t even lagging and can use everything else just fine

  • FriendlySaijin Dekku (@FriendlySaijin) reported

    @Altrexy_ Its not just overwatch dude, its also some internet providers. Theres a lot of strain going on due to quarantine and people being at home over using the speeds. The unprecedented traffic surge will def make some people lag on certain times/days or even consistently

  • SpaceManSpince SpaceManSpince (@SpaceManSpince) reported

    @hinapriv i think you have to seperate yourself from what ever is actually causing the issues. If it's overwatch IMO i think you should hop on this Valorant bandwagon while you're still warm. I feel like you'd be pretty poggers

  • Austin40674475 Aussy (@Austin40674475) reported

    @natsuxerza22 Again, that doesn't guarantee anything in my book. From what I've seen from watching 12hrs worth of streams (Give me a key already, please.), it looks visually cluttered, which is a problem in other games, Overwatch is getting bad at that as well.

  • AlJPalchick Deck the H-Al-ls Palchick 🎄🎅🏼☃️ (@AlJPalchick) reported

    Valorant is gonna have a very similar issue to Overwatch. Too many dualists and not enough of the other roles

  • z3thon Rosson Long (@z3thon) reported

    @FreshNuts_OW I know that you recently took down all of your old content which was really sad because I had a whole favorites list of your videos that is now just broken links but it would be absolutely amazing to at least have the Best of 2019 Overwatch montage video you made back!

  • YeahImReflex Reflex (@YeahImReflex) reported

    I only play fortnite cause I enjoy what the building adds to fight, I don't play in the br basically ever and I only play creative. Fortnites audio is broken and I can't stand it anymore. So, anyone wanna hop on Overwatch or csgo and do some 1v1s and talk, hmu.

  • jessiegames95 just a forest hag (@jessiegames95) reported

    So I was getting a bit of connection issues while playing Overwatch tonight so I’m thinking of doing the Animal Crossing stream tomorrow. I don’t want to be dropping frames which I already worry about streaming switch games

  • darwin_barrera Nomicon (@darwin_barrera) reported

    @AidanBreshers There's a huge problem: during the Blizzard controversy, Nintendo THEMSELVES put a refund option for people that pre-ordered the Switch version of Overwatch, THEY NEVER DONE THAT, it also doesn't help that the port sold horribly.

  • Xylloz Xylloz (@Xylloz) reported

    @vootmoot yeah i just don’t get how people can still say aim assist is not broken. Imagine having aim assist in a multiple input game like overwatch. Overwatch has a huge following on console, but no one buys a pc and plugs in their controller like they do with fortnite.

  • notplacebo placebo (@notplacebo) reported

    @BlizzardCS this is happening on the switch version of overwatch as well from what ive heard so it couldnt be an issue on just ps4s part

  • iamchewb m.r.m.b ⁶𓅓 (@iamchewb) reported

    Overwatch get's way too much hate. It's a great game and I love to play it. So much love in it and never had a problem with cheaters, bugs or too broken gameplay.

  • Gamingwiz135 Attoram (@Gamingwiz135) reported

    @Slasher I feel Overwatch's problems came from trying to make a game designed for more casual play into something more hardcore/competitive focus. Plus the content drip being painfully slow.

  • dontkysily 𝔂𝓾𝓴𝓲 (@dontkysily) reported

    if the maintenance of league is any indication of valorant this game is going to crash & burn. i’m not interested in a rerun of overwatch dog metas & shit balance but riot :)

  • 43R_Glitch Glitch (@43R_Glitch) reported

    It’s possible that this is a problem on fortnite, but in my experience with Overwatch and Apex I think people need to suck it up and deal with it. Without aim assist most controller players wouldn’t be able to play the ******* game. And also mad cuz bad

  • kodealamode Kodealamode (@kodealamode) reported

    @PlayStation I was playing Modern Warfare and it froze, then other games such as Overwatch and Apex legends also froze. At the same time the system XMB and all things out of game were slow and filled with lag. That was yesterday, and today the whole system freezes.

  • teethfreaks teff (@teethfreaks) reported

    is overwatch down or smth i was on destiny zero problems but i tried to log into ovw and it wont let me in

  • spyder_byte ❄️Winter Widow🕸 (@spyder_byte) reported

    Can’t even okay overwatch because lag is so terrible ;u; what did I do to deserve this
